I heard this phrase used today to describe Philip Markoff, accused of
killing a woman in Boston, and I'd thought it was unique, like the Boston
Strangler or the Green River Killer. But it turns out it was used
for Michael Anderson, killer from Minnesota, as well. I guess I find it
somewhat strange that the media would overlap names like that since it takes
away from the marketability of the story.
